Flywheel weight for 450SX

Anybody know of company that makes a heavier flywheel for a 03 450SX? Could use some extra weight to tame the motor alittle.


Hey Wes,As far as I know not at this time.I've talked with Chuck Steahly a couple times in the past month and nothing yet.I'm sure its due to the backwards mounting of the pickup and stator.On my 02 450sx I'm about ready to just go by an exc ignition...Weren't the 03 sx's supposed to come with some sort of adjustable flywheel weight?? :)

I read that in DirtRider. They dont come with the adjustable flywheel?

I've heard the adj weight thing before and of course the books that come with the bike are the same as my EX/C so that's no help but, I keep thinking (there I go again) that maybe some of the estart stuff might be heavy enough to make a difference, like the overrun clutch hub that bolts to the primary gear of a estart bike. Anybody know how much that weighs?

Well Wes I see that your kinda styngy (?) owning two 03's now aren't ya..LOL!!You could make my life alot easier and swap your exc ign. with your sx ign. and see what happens.. Or at least the flywheels...Thats probably going to be the cheapest route for me..I think I can get a exc ign.for about $180.. :)

If you're gonna swap ignitions, you'll need to swap the whole lot over. The ignition cover, stator and flywheel must be fitted as a unit. You also have to relocate the sender unit to the 2 extra holes that are outboard of where it's currently mounted and remove the metal spacers underneath it that put the pickup next to the right place on the flywheel.

The EXC ignition is not heavy enough. I would like about 10oz myself on my 525 EXC

      I have a 2007 450 EXC that I recently installed a new clutch slave cylinder on. Per the 2007 KTM service manual it clearly states that the clutch needs to be filled with hydraulic oil, which I did (magura blood). That was yesterday. I went out to double check the level today and when I removed the cover, the rubber seal was all contorted and out of shape. I then looked at the cover and it's a Brembo clutch and says "DOT 4 brake fluid only".
      I flushed the line and the master cylinder about 7 times with DOT 4 brake fluid and there was no sign of the magura blood left in the system. My question is: other than the rubber boot on the master cylinder, what damage might have been done by putting in the hydraulic oil? It was in for about 24 hours.
      Thanks in advance for any advice!

      Hi Folks!

      Sorry if there are a bunch of threads already but I used the site's search function and didn't find anything so far...

      I just found a decent deal on a '14 350 EXC-F with 11k km (unknown hours). Has a few goodies including skid plate, hand guards and it's for sale for about $2k CAD less than a '16 with 6k km on it.
      The bike is in showroom condition (appearance) with no indication it has been offroad at all.

      What would be the gotchas that would make this deal realistic? I'm coming from a WR250R where the engine lasts forever, is 11k street kms high for these bikes? 
      Are there any big defects in the '14s that I haven't dug up yet?
      With no service records what things should be done, checked, etc?

      I purchased an '06 525 EXC some time ago, and recently pulled the motor out of the frame to address some other issues. When I removed the clutch slave cylinder, I noticed an issue the previous owner neglected to tell me about during the purchase.
      It appears that at some point, the chain broke and damaged the engine case near the clutch slave cylinder (see pics, please). I have noticed that the clutch does not fully disengage (bike lurches a bit going into gear, neutral is hard to find... its worse when engine is cold) ... I did not notice any leaks around this area (mineral oil or engine oil) before or during disassembly. 
      The previous owner (or someone) repaired it with some sort of epoxy.
      Without doing my due diligence (checking clutch fluid level, bleeding) I hesitate to state that this is the cause of my clutch disengagement issue ... but pardon my ignorance here and help me out: How bad is this?  Am I looking at replacing my engine case here or is the previous owner's jerry rig good enough?
